Calderón wanted to "repress" 2006 sit-in protests in Mexico City

Alejandro Encinas, the PRD candidate for governor  in Mexico State, who in 2006 was interim mayor of Mexico City, said that president-elect Felipe Calderón wanted then-interior minister, now-deceased Carlos Abascal, to "repress" the 2006 plantón in Mexico City, where hundreds of thousands of PRD and AMLO supporters protested what they argued was a fraudulent election, through a massive sit-in in the main avenue Reforma, demanding a recount.

Yet the interior minister replied, "Felipe, you are still not president."

Los Pinos vehemently denied this revelation. It is truly remarkable if the claim is true.
